Raising Funds for the Team GIVE’R Foundation
We have created this foundation in honour of our friend, Kenneth McAlpine.
The word GIVE’R has two meanings; give it all you got, 100%, full commitment and Give Back to those in need! Kenneth was the ultimate Give Back guy. He demonstrated this kind, wholehearted behavior on a daily basis in every community he joined.
We focus on his two biggest passions in life; cooking and skiing by supporting and giving back to those in need. These people are either looking to pursue culinary arts as a career or get into the sport of skiing or advance their skillsets to new levels.
Kenneth’s Walk on October 16
It’s a Saturday afternoon 2.5 km guided walk around the Front 9 at Duntroon Highlands Golf with friends and family in small groups of 20-25.
Groups start from one of the 6 sampling stations at 1:00 pm. They move to the next station every 45 minutes. Each station features the delicious creations from a local chef paired with a local beverage.
During the walk, enjoy the company of great friends, family and memories while enjoying the fresh air, fall colours and breathtaking views.
Along the way there will also be fun games, a trivia contest, music and a chance to win prizes.
Located at Duntroon Highlands Resort
Nestled high on the Niagara Escarpment, the Duntroon Highlands golf course is one of the highest in Ontario. That makes for some spectacular views. It’s also surrounded by a rich hardwood forest and a network of trails including access to the Bruce Trail.
The Front 9 holes will be closed for this special event, given everyone the chance to walk freely along the fairways and also discover a few hidden spots at the headwaters of the Batteaux River.
